  • 2. 2The Issue The tragic events of Post Sept’ 11th, in particular July 7th 2005 in London, should make all HR managers think carefully about how prepared their business is for any type of critical incident. We are all conducting business in uncertain times. Protecting the future of the firm has to be the number one priority for every business manager. © Dr. Mark D. Yates. T: UK. 0843 155 0008. E: drmarkdyates@aol.com

Any incident, no matter how small, is capable of impacting your business & profitability. The size of any continuity plan will depend on the risks facing each business – it will be as large or as small as needed. © Dr. Mark D.

The majority of SME’s operate in specialised markets with limited product ranges & relatively small customer bases. Any short interruption to business can have a disproportionate effect, totally halting output & leaving customers high & dry.Source: AXA Insurance. © Dr. Mark D.
